Occupational hygiene

Two million people in the UK experience ill health caused by or aggravated by their working conditions and over 750,000 workers have time off from work with illnesses caused by work related factors.

Occupational Hygiene helps organisations identify, assess, control and monitor health hazards in the workplace and environment.

Organisations may have to monitor hazards in order to comply with legislation or do so as part of risk assessment processes to demonstrate ‘adequate control’ of the health and wellbeing of employees.
